    Words can not express the feelings I am experiencing at this moment, but I will try...

    Polwatch, although I never knew you in real life, the persona you projected via your alias, not only showed the character of a good person, but a great friend. Even through the faces of sheer stupidity shown here at times, you were able to parse your words and be the adult that was needed to calm down the tantrums and return order to the discussion. Your presence was missed before, and now at the news of your early departure, it reminds me of a quote..."There are things that we don't want to happen but have to accept, things we don't want to know but have to learn, and people we can't live without but have to let go"...thanks for being my friend.

    It takes a thing like this to cause us to remember and think about something that all of us - and I do mean all - quite frequently lose sight of...simply that behind each avatar is a flesh and blood human being. Each strong in his or her own way and fragile in others. Each with sorrows and joys, problems and triumphs we will never be privy to. You and I - we have before us, right this minute, a miracle of technology that allows us to communicate with other people a half a world away. And what do we do with it?

    What do we do with it?


    I stand on the mountaintop, as the great bird approaches.
    She is small in my sight, but grows larger on approach
    Until I am blessed with the full sight of her graceful wings, proud countenance and good company.
    All too quickly, she grows small again on the horizon and disappears from view.
    And I call out,
    "Look, there. She's gone."

    But there are other mountaintops beyond me.
    And at the precise moment when I note the great bird's departure from my view,
    I know there are new eyes taking up the sight of her.
    And fresh voices calling out,
    "Here she comes!"
    "It is a foolish man who believes that he possesses all of the answers unless he is absolutely certain that he has heard all of the questions." - me

    "At some point when you create yourself to make it, you're going to have to either let that creation go and take a chance on being loved or hated for who you really are, or you're going to have to kill who you really are and fall into your grave grasping a character you never were." - Jim Carrey

    This isn't news anyone wants to hear.

    You never know what's going on in the life of the people here.

    A twinkling star in the night's sky has faded from our view, but not from our memory.

    You are right, and that's one good reason to remember, like Standing Wolf says, that each post we read on here has a person, with a life, with people who love them, and with disappointments and sometimes pain, behind it. We can disagree with their views, we can have fun with what they say, but if we are deliberately nasty - we can never take back those things, and we have not made a life happier. If I had said unkind things to and about Polwatch, I would be much unhappier than I am now.

    A light has gone out.

    I am relieved that, for a very special lady, suffering is now a thing of the past, but, although I knew she was ill, I really didn't expect this so soon.

    Polwatch contacted me to be a VIP before I knew what being one meant, and she assured me that I could do it. She was always kind, but she never complained or shared the turmoil she was living. She was the epitome of class and graciousness. Soft-spoken and wise. A lady to the manor born.

    My heart goes out to those here who knew her well -- and to the loved ones she leaves behind.

    Fly free, sweet lady. Fly high.

    Well, I'm just hoping that I've lived a good enough life to catch up to her somewhere down the road. This sort of news tends to put things in their true order of importance.

    I knew her here for such a short time. What I remember the most is she was always the adult in the room. Her online grace is to be commended. How lucky her family is to have had her in their life. I try to temper my sadness in hearing bad news with my novice poetry. Here's one.


    Rudder in hand, tailing winds blown full.
    We must set our course, unseen but over the horizon.

    Waves lapping upon our eyes and soul, sun shaded then bright.
    The urge for last port made strong, with sleepless and frantic made life.

    No land has fallen over seas dark, black and rising.
    It stirs a restless faith in a journey ending.
    With sweetest light and joyous sighting comes a calm harbor, a harbor in Heaven.

    RIP Polwatch

    Art thou every retard among us related to thine uncle or mistress by way of moral or illegitimate rendezvous? Thus, we are one side of the other's coin by luck or pluck. - Jimmyz

    We had our ups and downs but we always made up by changing the subject to food. Good person.
    Whoever criticizes capitalism, while approving immigration, whose working class is its first victim, had better shut up. Whoever criticizes immigration, while remaining silent about capitalism, should do the same.
